2021 BMW G 310 GS First Look (6 Fast Facts): ADV and Urban Ready

The smallest GS in the BMW range gets a few upgrades for the coming model year. Let’s take a look at what will be different about the 2021 BMW G 310 GS.

  1. The 313cc DOHC single is now ride-by-wire. This feature allows BMW to bring the motor up to Euro 5 standards for emissions. Additionally, BMW claims the new system will result in increased throttle sensitivity and more resistance to stalling.
  1. The clutch now has assist and slipper functions. The already light pull of the 310’s clutch will now be even less demanding.
